Who Did It Better – The Flame Still Burns

Starting a new regular feature on my blog, “Who Did It Better”. In this feature we will compare two versions of the same song and give you the readers the opportunity to vote on which one is better. Simple enough? Here’s our first one…

If you haven’t seen the 1998 movie “Still Crazy” DO IT. It’s a great movie of a group of aging rockstars who regroup and try and recapture the success they had in the past. One of the things that makes this movie great is the music. One song that stuck out for me the very first time I watched the movie was “The Flame Still Burns”.

I won’t go into the details of where it fits into the movie and why it’s impactful, because that would probably include some spoilers. What I will say about the song is that I was recently shocked to find out that it was originally written by Foreigner’s Mike Jones. The fictional band in the movie played performed the song and it went on to win the Ivor Novello Award for songwriting.

Up until recently, Foreigner has never recorded it but now in conjunction with the celebration of Foreigner’s 40th anniversary in 2017, a version of the track has been recorded and a video released.

Which version is better? Here’s videos for both and a survey on the bottom where you can let us know which version is better.
